    the weather made good pictures a bit of a challange for my little fuji bridge camera here goes any way and i will sort out the rest of the pictures later and start a thread for them.

    Rochie,
    Thanks for the pictures! Those of us on this side of the pond are deeply envious. Back at the museum things are quiet without VR*A flying around. Keep posting -- great pictures.

    What a treat to see the two Lancs in action. Great series of shots, too!

    I still say that the first photo in the second group is a great illusion, giving me the impression you were airborn on the Lancs' 11 O'Clock!

    Certainly a memorable (and badass) photo! :thumbleft:

    Yup agreed, can make it old for you and you can claim you shot that photo while on your way to bomb Berlin :)

    Ah, perhaps, although I still like the one you got now, it came out pretty nice. When I have some time to spare, I'll see what I can do with this one, though. Got some nice extensions on Gimp that I would like to try.

    Great shots Red Two - I love that first pic in Post#3, a real cracker !!
    I'm still downloading and sorting mine, and I'll post some asap, in a thread covering the whole show, probably some time tomorrow. Trying to catch up after being away for four days !

    Yes, the lighting was tricky at certain angles, even my Nikon was struggling with some. You did well with the little Fuji.
    It was a great show though, a bit different from the usual Duxford stuff, and very well organised. And the Vulcan ..... just WOW! - with a capital 'F' !!!

    Excellent.

    Now lets talk about pay back. I don't expect to see the BobMF Lancaster here ever but you could certainly crate up four Merlins, 2 Spits and 2 Hurricanes or any combination you see fit and send them this way for 5-6 weeks.

    Jeff,
    Well said. I did see an interview with the pilot of the BBMF Lancaster and when asked the question was the RAF going to reciprocate, he smiled and said there have been "talks" . To bad a S/L couldn't make decisions like that. (May be one of the Spits could be the 2 seater trainer.)
